PostSubject: History and Setting   Fri Mar 09, 2012 1:34 am

It's 1890. Montana has been settled here and there. The Natives have mostly left. Wars are over. The earth is barren, new, ready to be built upon and give birth to the new life that is settling there. Settlements are few and far between. Land has become the measure of wealth. Some are finding that they can make the wild west lifestyle work, and others... either return home, or are never heard from again. The beaver fur trade has been long-since over. Wolf fur is proving to be valuable...

To the common eye, WolfCreek looks like just another new community. A small settlement in the middle of nowhere, Montana. It started with a family: Ben, Aithne, and Corrine Glendower. Ben Glendower came from money. He bought a ghost town and moved his wife and young daughter to Montana. They renamed the town, WolfCreek, for the howls they heard every night. It took several years to fix up the town. Drifters came and went, but no one settled in the abandoned houses around town. Ten months after moving to town, Corrine Glendower fell ill and died. Her parents grieved, but stayed in WolfCreek. Five years later, Ben Glendower had an accident. The injury became infected. It took two years for WolfCreek to claim its second life. Aithne Glendower grieved by throwing herself into the town. She fixed up the rest of buildings, planted crops in her field, harvested her own grain, bought a few cows, chickens, and goats. Two years later, a wolf pup ended up on Aithne's back porch. The pup was malnourished and covered in crusted scabs. Aithne's first reaction was to kill the pup. Even though she had had no problems with the neighboring pack, her instinct told her to be scared. The pup opened her eyes and looked at Aithne, golden eyes begged for mercy. Aithne took the pup in and tended her wounds, brought her back to good health. And that, is when she met, Aryln...

Aryln was the pup's mother. It was a warm spring day and the pup was bounding around. Her parents came looking for her, to bring her home. Aryln approached Aithne, tail raised, hackles down. Aithne stayed frozen where she was, sitting on the back porch. Aryln placed her forehead against Aithne's, and they became linked. They could hear each other's thoughts, feel the emotions raging through each other's bodies. In the coming years, Aithne met the pack, and they started working together. The pack was small, consisting of Aryln, her mate, a brother, and two pups. Through Aryln, Aithne learned that the wolves had the ability to connect with humans. Aryln and Aithne were linked, forever. And anyone else who moves to town, who gains their trust, may find themselves with a companion as well...

Several people have moved into town. The rent or purchase of the properties is cheap. Ben made sure Aithne was taken care of before he died. They owned the town. Aithne tries not to judge those who move to town, but hopes that this is a second chance, to make life a better place.

There is no currency in WolfCreek. It is all done by trade or barter. Gems, jewelry, food, goats, horses, are all forms of "currency".
